The 432 Park Avenue building in Manhattan is an excellent example. The 432 Park Avenue building which is the tallest residential building in the world and the second tallest building in NYC after the One World Trade Center is what all hotels should be like, that way they will most likely never run out of rooms.
When are you planning to build your hotel? Will it be super tall?

Yeah, this is almost as humorous as the thread he created to tell everyone that he was thinking of filing a lawsuit because a fast food restaurant took too long to give him his meal.

If a restaurant calls itself a fast food place than it should do what it says and serve the food fast without people having to wait. I had to wait almost half an hour from the time I made my order to the time I got my food, that's longer than at most sit down restaurants! I've even thought about filing a lawsuit but at the very least I will file a complaint.

Exactly. When I worked at hotels, when we were close to sold out, we would do a call around to find out how many rooms the other local hotels had left in case someone showed up.

Get a diesel Sprinter Class B and what you save on hotel rooms should be more than the extra fuel you would use. Overnight in Wal Mart parking lots or even side streets in residential areas.

Not sure what bothers me more - the use of the word 'traveling" somehow being different from going on vacation. Or the fact that someone would pick up something that has been hanging around a rest stop.

This will be it, a giant Comfort Inn built in the middle of nowhere, just in case too many people show up.

Then again, I don't worry about hotel rooms either, I just get some shuteye in a truck stop parking lot.
Are you a truck driver?

Never. Hotels aren't my business.

Vacations might or might not involve traveling and when you do travel it might or might not be a vacation. Truck drivers travel all the time but they are not on vacation when they're doing so, they're on the job. Or you might be traveling on a business trip in which case its business not vacation. When you do go on vacation you might travel somewhere, or you might just stay at home while on vacation like Chevy Chase did in the movie Christmas Vacation.
